Marseille makes it six in a row
Paris, France - Marseille kept pace with French League leader Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) on Sunday after coming from behind to beat Bordeaux 3-1 and rack up a sixth straight win that keeps it five points behind the champion.
Jordan Amavi, Morgan Sanson and Nemanja Radonjic hit the decisive goals in front of a raucous crowd of around 52,000 as Andre Villas-Boas' side maintained a hot streak that has seen them rise to second in the French top flight.
"At the break the coach told us to do more, to get the Velodrome right behind us," said Sanson, whose 60th-minute strike put Marseille ahead after it had fallen behind to Yacine Adli's superb first-half opener.
With three teams qualifying for Europe's Champions League, Marseille is seven points ahead of fourth-placed Rennes and
was in fine form on Sunday, failing to be fazed by Adli's stunning 31st-minute strike for Bordeaux. Nantes is a point ahead of Saint-Etienne in sixth after beating Dijon 1-0.
